ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES WITH CHICKEN TACOS

This chicken is so tender, juicy and packed with flavor. It’s also very versatile. It goes well in tacos, burritos and even salads. Placing it in taco shells is my family’s preferred way. Everyone gets to pile on their favorite toppings such as: diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, black olives, diced onion and cilantro. The options are truly endless.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) taco seasoning
  • Juice from 1 lime
